Notes 
 Trae Young exploded onto the scene last year and finished fourth in scoring (29.6 points) and second in assists (9.3) per game. His 205 made three-pointers were sixth-most in the league and he did it at a 36.1% clip. If he's able to improve his shooting heading into his third year, there's no reason to expect him to finish outside the top-three in scoring.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
Booker is the centerpiece on arguably the most exciting young team in the NBA. He was a top ten scorer last season with his 26.6 points/game and quietly added a solid 6.5 assists/game. For context, that was in the same range for assists as Fred VanVleet and Chris Paul, though Booker clearly brings more total upside given his ability to take over a game with his scoring.
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
 The Atlanta Hawks spared no expense this offseason in putting an extremely formidable team around second-year All-Star PG Trae Young. By adding guys like Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari, the Hawks are signaling to their young core that they are going all-in to surround them with the talent they need to succeed as early as this season. Last season, Young budded into a superstar right in front of our eyes, finishing fourth in scoring (29.6 ppg) and second in assists (9.3 apg), trailing only LeBron James in that category. While the scoring numbers could come down with a plethora of options to put the ball in the basket, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Young averages over 10 assists per game this season. He's also only missed a total of eight games in two seasons. In a world of "DNP-rest," Young is as safe as they come in the middle to later part of the first round in 2020-21.
